‘Festival Of The Sky‘, an outside performance art show of story telling, lights, acrobatics and fireworks became an immersive theatrical extravaganza at the Meridian Showground, Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire.
Tales of local legend, folklore and heritage brought to life through nine spirits and the story that in the twilight hour the restless souls take flight. It is then you can see the lights and hear the words of the spirits.
A free outside event to attend and luckily good weather. The audio was exceptional and full of local legend stories.
I look forward to what the ‘Festival Of The Sky’ offers next year and I feel it can only get bigger and better! Top class event that needs supporting!.
Local Legends and Folklore of Cleethorpes and Grimsby
According to folklore pagan witches met in the woods on a Friday and Saturday night and hold rituals held within the witches circle to keep unwanted energy away.
Chapmans pond, according to folklore, is a bottomless pond. Ghosts and spirits of a horse, cart driver and a young girl haunt the area. A haunted body also falls from the water tower to the pond below.
There is said to be a ghost of a man who hanged himself on the old ghost train, now haunting the area.
Have you heard of any of these legends and do you know of any other legends? Did you attend the ‘Festival Of The Sky’ and love it as much as I did? I would love to hear from you.
